I have a i7 920 with ASUS P6T SE
Which is faster.. Intel's Turbo mode or manual overclocking?
Turbo mode on the 920 only clocks to 2.93ghz if I recall, so the answer depends on how high you manually clock it!
Cheers reflux! Manual overclocking it is then I'll prob try to push it to 4Ghz.
What is the highest safe temp on the i7 920?
4ghz should be pretty easy. Max safe temp under stress testing load I would say is about 80 c measured with real temp or core temp.
Yep, manual overclocking all the way, with turbo enabled (21x multi) its easier to get a clock stable as opposed to 20x on x58 boards, currently running 21x193 here on an asus p6t deluxe v2.
